With everyone in the Leader and Observer office getting into the Hallowe’en spirit this week, we asked readers to send us their pumpkin photos.

We got a great response in Kincardine and Mearns, with people e-mailing, facebooking and tweeting us their creations.

Reporter Rachel Campbell’s partner Barry also carved out a very special ‘Mearns Leader’ pumpkin, and it seems he wasn’t the only one getting creative with a carving knife.

From everyone at the Mearns Leader and Kincardineshire Observer - Happy Hallowe’en and have a great bonfire night.
